AngelPad Plans 9/10 Launch
AngelPad, a new mentorship program for Web startups founded by seven ex-Google employees, is planning to hold a launch event in San Francisco on September 10, according to a Twitter post yesterday. AngelPad’s founding team features a variety of former product, marketing, advertising, and research managers from Google, including Richard Chen, Keval Desai, Thomas Korte, Vibhu Mittal, Deep Nishar, Gokul Rajaram, and David Scacco. Further details about the program were unavailable. The program has apparently chosen an initial group of startups for mentorship, as an application page states that “the application deadline for AngelPad 2010 has passed.” The story was first reported by TechCrunch.
